Class Description

The Type 3 shuttlecraft was designed for standard auxiliary craft operations on the (at the time) newly refitted Constitution-class. The popularity of her design and the effortless stability of the craft was, and still is, widely touted throughout the fleet nearly a hundred years later. Mainly used on land and starbase facilities, these shuttlecraft are still used throughout the fleet on the classes that were of contemporary design at the time of the Type 3 shuttlecraft was in it's prime including the Akula, Ambassador, Centaur, Excelsior, Miranda and even newer class starships at the discretion of a ships Captain and availability of the Type 3's.

The Type 3 shuttlecraft was primarily designed as a “ship to shore” craft, and as such contains internal features such as weapons lockers and bench seating for the landing party. The shuttle is equipped with a single phaser array, though it is more useful for breaking up spacial debris than anything else due to the low amount of power available to the craft in general. Designed only to operate at impulse speeds, the shuttle will never have the glory of being a "star-cruising shuttle" like the Type 9 shuttlecraft and Type 11 shuttlecraft respectively. However, given her long history of reliability, much like the Excelsior-class, it is unlikely that this shuttle will be phased out of service anytime in the near future.
